everyday is love day here

i'm slowly but surely working my way through february.  only about three weeks behind.  i would have loved to wish each of you a happy valentine's day on valentine's day but i just happened to be extremely under the weather.  i woke up with a migraine that just got worse and worse all day long.  i tried to fight it but it just wouldn't kick.  i was super bummed out; it seems like lately whenever i have plans of fun and grandeur, especially with my hubs, something happens to ruin our time.  illness, migraines, sitters falling through.
it was little bean's first ever love day!  happy valentine's day my dear sweet baby!  our friend, miss alex gave emmie this awesome sweater giraffe.  look how happy she is.
aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh, soooooo awesome!!
oh i love love love him.  mom let go.

i wanted to have all kinds of fun with baby emmie and cover her with hearts and kisses.  i wanted to have dinner with benny and clean the whole house as a sweet [and surely unexpected] surprise.  all i could do was get emmie into valentine inspired pajama's.  she was pretty excited about it though.
when we woke up valentine's morning we found the most wonderful little gifts waiting for us from benny.  her first ever bouquet of flowers (from her poppa! - i die), little bitty bear and the sweetest love note in existence.  momma got pampered too, don't worry.  i think its almost more fun to celebrate for emmie than little ol' me these days.  in a sweet act of selflessness ben also left a meeting early to come take care of me because i could barely function.  so thankful for that man.
we had a redo of love day on the 15th, bringing about the notion that really everyday should be love day around here.  i did in fact get to cover my baby in hearts and kisses in perfect health.  look how awesomely precious she is in pink.  i don't even like pink but i love it on her.  she. is. such. a. doll!
and while i wasn't able to clean the entire house since my work was so backed up i did get to shuffle around and get a few things done - i wish it was more.  the following saturday we were beyond blessed to have auntie emily sit for emmie while ben and i went on a much needed date night.  we are seriously bad at setting up time outside the house without the babe in tow.  i think that might need to change, i miss dates, uninterrupted time, fun time, laughing together, going on adventures - not just being partners at life, taking care of business - but being best friends, really enjoying each other company.  i was thankful for that reminder.  dinner and a movie never felt so good.

i know this is no creative geniusness but here are the treats i made for benny's class for their v-day party.  i kind of wanted to pop in and all the little kiddos exchanging their love notes but we weren't able to make it.  i bet they were adorable.
last but not least, my dear sweet girl covered not only in kisses but also sweet potatoes.  she started eating food but somehow manages to get equal amount in her mouth as on her clothes.
she's just as adorable clean as when she's potatoed.  lookin' just like her poppa bear.  adorbs.
let everyday be love day in your home.
